We spent four nights viewing or trying to view the Northern Lights. Finally on our last night we saw the elusive lights. Our tour with Northern Tales went well, Yoko our tour guide last night was the best guide, very customer focused and full of good information. She took photos of the lights for us and we can download them for free as well, thanks!

We hired the clothing pack and it was well worth the money, at -18C it was very cold and we would not have coped at all. The boots were great just for walking about town during the day to keep our feet warm.

The Aurora Borealis tour was first class. The staff was very professional, very knowledgeable and helpful. Our tour group left promptly each night for the viewing - there was no questtions left unanswered and the knowledge of all the staff regarding camera settings to capture the activity in the night sky, was veey imprssive. From warm clothing rentals to tripod usage, Northern Tales had everything covered and covered excellently. The cabin for warming the tourists and the camera equipment was a must - the cabin was homey and always warm where food and drink were supplied. I will not hesitate to recommend this Tour Company to my friends anf family - this tyoe of service is history is this day and age.

This was a perfect, unique way to celebrate a landmark birthday. The staff & guides of Northern Tales were excellent, nothing too much trouble. My digital camera did not do justice to the Northern Lights, but the photograph which was posted on the website thrilled us and has been sent out to friends and family all over the globe.

Thank you for a wonderful, memorable experience.

Wow! This trip was planned since May of this year. 3 planes and 7 months later it was well worth every minute of planning. From beginning to end Northern Tales staff were so helpful and responsive that it was easy to book what we wanted and every question was answered quickly by email. When we arrived a day too early (my error) they made sure the hotel was booked for another night and that the hotel staff was waiting for us at the airport at 11:30 PM. We saw the Nortern lights the very first night we were taken out. I can't describe how beautiful they were and we also saw the milky way and shooting stars that night. What could be better? Well if you add to that a warm cabin with a fire, mollasses on snow, hot chocolate and wonderful guides and tourists you have a complete package. Northern Tales even had a photographer whose camera didn't freeze as ours did in the 30 degree below celcius temperature and she took photos of every guest who wanted one in front of the Northern Lights! No charge!!! Comm on folks, that is unheard of. The dog mushing was fun since we got to run our own dogs. What an experience. We swam in a hot spring in the middle of ice and snow, went to a wild life preserve and had a tour of the quaint and beautiful town of Whitehorse. We rented the suits Northern Tales provided and I highly recommend doing this as we were very comfortable in the cold temperatures and they came packed in a Northern Tales bag all ready to go. To Fernando G. I don't recommend Air Canada because for us it did not work well but Air North I believe is suggested by Northern Tales. I would write them and ask. They are very helpful. Anyway if you have an opportunity to go to Whitehorse don't hesitate. It is a trip of a lifetime and Northern Tales is the way to go. Carol Walsh

Like most people booking a tour for Northern Lights, I was pretty clueless about what to expect. The guys running Northern Tales Tours are fantastic. They are very knowledgeable and helpful with the entire booking process and even arranged discounted airfare for us. All of the their staff is incredible helpful and go above and beyond to make your tour enjoyable. The dog sledding add on is a must. Well worth ever dollar. I would rate the whole tour as a 7 out of 5 stars. We can't say enough good things.
